Traben-Trarbach Travel Guide: 125 reviews and 410 photos


Traben-Trarbach is now one town, separated by the River Moselle.

Previously, two separate towns known as Treban and Trarbach, since 1904 they have joined to become a city, and the names have been joined together.

In the 17th century the Town was devasted by War, and so today, only two ruin's remain that can be visited.

After the war followed a long period of prosperity in which the city was rebuilt.

The old medieval building's had all been destroyed and in their place sprung up a new Town, built in the Art Nouveau style.

The town has several natural springs and is known as a health resort".

I would like to tell you about more historic building's, but my brochure is only written in German, so I will just put some more photo's in a travelogue.

I really loved this Town and the Art Nouveau architecture!

    Beautiful photos in your tips and travelogues. I have gone through Traben-Trarbach on the train a few times, but never got off to look around.

      I guess you wouldn't see much from the Train. Both sides of the river are worth seeing, so perhaps you may have to make a stop! Thanks for the visit!

    I tried so hard to fit this into our plans, but couldn't. Your descriptions make me want to go back again.
